Fifty years ago, a groundbreaking series of events — "9 Evenings: Theatre & Engineering" — brought together ten artists and thirty scientists and engineers to create collaborative work. 9e2 has used "9 Evenings" as an inspiration to gather a series of performances and installations that demonstrate what can happen when art, science, and technology come together. The events take place from October 21 to 29 at King Street Station and other venues. Ticket information is here.
Among the installations is SYNAPTIC LEXICON, which shows the work of nine artists who have explored science and the brain. The artists include Senior Lecturer Timea Tihanyi (MFA 2003) and Nola Avienne (MFA 2007). Tihanyi participated in a 9e2 Test Party at Bellevue Arts Museum on October 1.
Also showing is The Origins of Biometric Data created by Geraldine Ondrizek (MFA 1994). She is a Professor of Art at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. A portion will be shown at 9e2, plus she will have an exhibition of the same name at Cornish College of the Arts. The opening reception and her gallery talk will take place at Cornish on October 17, 5-7:30pm.
PYLON II is a performance that takes place on October 21 and October 26. Alexander Boeschenstein (BA 2015) creates live visual projections as part of the event. Read more about PYLON II.
